2008-01-03 [nehirwen]: *yay* the banner, dividers, badges and a little pilgrims hat are done ^^

2008-01-03 [Sunrose]: Niiiice =D
The little hat is a little too big for the moods, but it will fit in the calendar ^^

2008-01-03 [nehirwen]: too big? I thought you said the size of a mood-icon is max. 40 pixels wide and 25 pixels high, which this hat is exactly.. O.o

2008-01-03 [Sunrose]: Wow, it looks higher O_O
My bad :p

2008-01-03 [nehirwen]: alrighty ^^ (all 25 pixels in height are filled in, maybe that makes it look higher? :)

2008-01-03 [nehirwen]: any (other) changes suggested in these contest wiki's? or is it okey this way..

2008-01-03 [Sunrose]: Quite possibly ^^'

2008-01-04 [nehirwen]: :)

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: Consistant, aren't we, Nehirwen? lol This one reminds me a lot like St. Patrick's Day Festival.

2008-01-05 [Sunrose]: That's because the St. Patricks's Day Festival is a good wiki-design for these contests ;)

2008-01-05 [nehirwen]: good design maybe (thank you [Sunrose]!) but I also like a bit of uniformity in the contests I make :) that's just how my mind works.

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: I modeled mine after yours, but alas, don't have the programs to create those awesome graphics you did. lol I'm planning to have one of my friends [Pnelma Tirian] make them, and if she's unable, I'm planning to ask [Mom] just so we can get others involved.

I'd ask you, but I don't want to seem a bother...although I almost always feel like one.

2008-01-05 [nehirwen]: That's fine with me :)
(and you wouldn't have bothered me at all ;)

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: Okay. You're welcome to do anything,
but if I can be so bold as to make a request,
I think a sparkler would do nicely for the
(Sounds like a police department.)

2008-01-05 [nehirwen]: lol, sounds funny indeed.
what kind of graphic should that sparkler be? (a little mood thingy? or something else?)

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: It's up to you.
I don't really mind what it turns out as.

2008-01-05 [nehirwen]: Then I'll make the mood thing :)

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: ^_^ Yay!

2008-11-16 [nehirwen]: I assume you're making a digital drawing (using paint)? That would be considered 'art'.

2009-10-05 [hanhepi]: who's the mod? you were the last author and you're the owner, i thought you were the mod? lol!

*pokes actual mod*

i hope the mod is one of the 4 people besides you and me watching the page.

2009-10-05 [nehirwen]: Good you mentioned that. xD
*changes wiki owner* :p

2009-10-05 [Mortified Penguin]: *cough*

2009-10-05 [FamousPanda]: Well hey there everyone, I don't know how to make things more public btw. Sorry.

2009-10-06 [Mortified Penguin]: Invite people?

2009-10-06 [FamousPanda]: [nehirwen] are you making the pages or.. Because I'm not really positive on what exactly to do, no one ever showed me.

2009-10-06 [nehirwen]: The pages are ready for this year already, I'll show you what to do when next year needs to be prepared. :)
(unless you want to know now of course, and I'll message you about modding this stuff in general asap - I thought I already did that O.o)

2009-10-06 [hanhepi]: oh, there's the owner! :)

as far as getting the page more publicity, like Mort said, invite people (or get him to. he knows everyone.) and nehi writing a news item, and maybe get it on the calendar on the side of mainstreet.

2009-10-06 [nehirwen]: It's on the calendar already, like all festivals. :p

2009-10-06 [hanhepi]: oh, i'll be... yeah it is on there ain't it.

2011-03-19 [Nioniel]: Mort; don't forget to add winners to the archive listed at the bottom of the page. The archive for this festival only shows winners from 2008 so far. Make sure you're updating all of the archives for pages you've edited, please! :)

2011-03-19 [Mortified Penguin]: Stupid archives!

2011-03-20 [Mortified Penguin]: The Midsummer contest has no archives, as far as I can tell.
